ISLAMABAD- Chief Justice of Pakistan, Justice Nasir-ul-Mulk today detached himself from a bench hearing case pertaining to electoral reforms.

"Technically it will be inappropriate to hear the case since I was performing my duty as acting Chief Election Commissioner at the time when the Election Commission of Pakistan submitted this petition in the Supreme Court," the CJP observed. The CJP issued directives for hearing of the case before any other bench. The New bench will hear the same case on November 10.
